Jim, I really like the look of the charcoal and colored pencils together. There is a lot of detail in this piece... so much patience. Lovely. :)
This is really nice! I love scenes like this. In fact I have some fabric that has somewhat the same look to it. What is news print paper? The paper they print news papers on? Where can you buy that??Anyway, I really like this sketch.
I was in Tuscany last year in a little village (San Casciano di Bagni) that looked very similar to your sketch. It brought back some very happy memories.Great job!
Nice sketch! I have never tried the combination of charcoal and color pencils myself, but from your sketch it seems to work very well. I also like the soft reddish color on the buildings.
Wow. When you come back youe REALLY come back. Great to see your work again. I agree with Evy, I have never tried that combination of media before but you really got it to work.
Jim, This is really beautiful!
very nice Jim, like the small touch of pink with the soft grey shadings, I love this type of architecture, beautiful scene.
Thanks for all your comments! Kathyj, the newsprint is a large pad I purchased in an art store; it's called "newsprint."
